There are pros and cons to both but mostly pros to upgrading to an S6, IMHO.

You just have to be willing to be adventurous and not stay contained within your "confined box" style of mixing on the ICON. That's not meant as an insult. I was a transfer student myself coming from an ICON and my mistake was to look for the similarities instead of the actual features. Some of the methods you may have grown accustomed to may not transfer over to the S6. However, the fantastic part is you'll mostly discover better, faster ways of doing the same things.

Yes, some of the ICON features did not port over to S6. Like Eddie said, coming releases will contain some of those features. It would be in your best interest to throughly watch some videos on You Tube as well as the videos released by AVID themselves. They show some if not most of the functions available on the S6.
Hmmm. Thanks. Watched a lot of the videos. I don't have a studio where I can go and work on a mix on the s6.

My main hesitation right now besides the cost is all the complaints about the slow development of the software.

I need to just get on one and mix a few songs i guess.
